Presidential Global Scholars Program

Northeastern students span the globe and contribute to solving many of today’s most challenging problems. Students need to be as comfortable in Beijing and San Pablo as they are in Boston and Los Angeles. Global experiences give Northeastern students the opportunity to live and learn in different cultures, immersing themselves in new approaches and generating new ideas to solve complex issues.

The Presidential Global Scholars Program supports outstanding students seeking international co-op. Through competitively awarded grants, this program encourages and enables students to take advantage of all that Northeastern has to offer.

Grants will be awarded on two levels:

The Presidential Global Scholarship provides up to 400 students annually with the financial means to participate in an international co-op experience. Students applying for the Presidential Global Scholarship will also be considered for the Presidential Global Fellowship.

All applicants must exhibit exceptional leadership qualities and be eligible for both levels of the Presidential Global Scholars Program. They must also demonstrate an understanding of the relevance and importance of their chosen experience to their educational pursuit, personal development, and career goals.
